Karwan Movie Review: Three Misfits On A Self-Discovery Journey
Karwan is a coming-of-age film directed by Akarsh Khurrana, the film marks the debut of Dulquer Salman, YouTube Sensation Mithila Palkar and Irrfan.
A journey with three strangers who don't know each other and end up going to the same destination but discovering themselves during the journey. Karwan is all about that.
The plot involves around Avinash (Dulquer Salmaan), a young corporate employee residing in Bangalore who works 9-to-5 without limits. In short, he is completely in the dead-end of his life. While working he gets a call stating that his father passed away on a pilgrimage trip and he has to collect the body. Avinash shares a very weird relationship with his father where his father never supported his dreams. Kind of reminds of the crazy yet wacky relationship between a father-daughter shown in Piku. Then enters Shaukat (Irrfan) who is given the responsibility to take Avinash from Bangalore to Kochi and what they realize is that the dead bodies have been mixed up during the journey. Then enters Tanya (Mithila Palkar) who happens to be the claimer of the dead body mixed up.
The dysfunctional trio ends up in the same car, with the dead body and head on a journey which makes them discover themselves, ranging from unanswered questions to impulsive decisions which made them regret about it.
The director Akarsh Khurrana has done a very good job of showing the journey with picturesque locations like Ooty, Munnar, and Coimbatore. The technical details have been done in a really good manner which gives a visual treat to the audience who are watching it now.
Good story and very good message at the same time. This one will be one of those road movies which most of us loved and started giving us a lot of travel goals.
